    Why anyone would hack off the back section of the frame is beyond me. I'm glad you kept it intact.

    Sure the rear exhaust is far enough from the rear tire?

    How's the exhaust look from the other side?

    Here is how it looks like - 2 in 2 exhaust. Anyway - I still need to lower the right one, its a bit too high in comparison to the left one

    Rear wheel is on place finally! And it fits nicely

    1. First of all - rear swing arm axis - as I wrote before I needed to make a new one. Here it is.



    2. Next I fitted all rear parts, all went well. Just some nervous about fitting the rear wheel as its a custom spoke wheel made with XV 535 hub... but it fitted almost plug&play. As the hub is a bit wider then the original one, I need to make some mods to wheel axis - its a bit wider in the end and I need to make this part a bit shorter, so that the axis will go deeper into hob and will come out on the other side. Its a matter of about 15 mm max. Will take care of it in next days.

    And here it is:

    Axle is a part, axis is any line used as a fixed reference.

    K&N air filter in place. Needed to use original mounting parts, all fits perfect and you don't see these plastic elements, all is hidden.
